Polyvalent Influenza Virus-Like Particles (VLPs) and Use as Vaccines Description of Technology: This viruslike particle (VLP) vaccine technology for influenza viruses, based on a mixture of VLPs expressing the hemagglutinin protein or the neuraminidase protein from influenza virus strains belonging to different virus subtypes, has demonstrated broad protection against lethal challenge in mice with various influenza virus strains and virus subtypes. Results from ferret and mouse studies demonstrate broad heterosubtypic protection against various influenza virus subtypes further supporting and strengthening the proposed application of this technology as a universal influenza virus vaccine. This technology is available for licensing for commercial development in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404, as well as for further development and evaluation under a research collaboration. Potential Commercial Applications: • Vaccines Competitive Advantages: • Broad/universal protection against influenza viruses • does not require reformulating vaccine each year as is currently necessary with vaccines available on the market • can potentially provide protection against novel influenza viruses that may arise in the future, including potentially pandemic influenza viruses Inventors: Dr. Jeffery Taubenberger of NIAID.

Title of invention: Gene Signature Predictive of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Response to Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization (TACE). Keywords: Diagnostic, Biomarker, Prognostic, Hepatocellular Carcinoma, Patient Stratification, TACE, HCC. Description of Technology: Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide with largely unfavorable outcomes due to a lack of effective treatment options for patients in the later state of disease. The gold standard of care for HCC patients with intermediate to locally advanced tumors is transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE), a procedure whereby the tumor is targeted both with local chemotherapy and restriction of local blood supply. TACE procedures are often not effective, however, and a need exists to identify patients that will respond to TACE. Scientists in NCI’s Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis have identified a 14-gene signature that is predictive of response to TACE. The ‘‘TACE Navigator Gene Signature Assay,’’ based on a Nanostring Technologies platform, is useful in identifying those HCC patients, prior to treatment, who will respond to and have the greatest survival benefit following TACE. The signature can also identify patients who need additional/alternative therapeutic modalities. This invention is owned by an agency of the U.S. Government and is available for licensing and/or co-development in the U.S., in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404, to achieve expeditious commercialization of results of federally-funded research and development. Foreign patent applications are filed on selected inventions to extend market coverage for companies and may also be available for licensing and/or co-development. E:\FR\FM\17NON1.SGM 17NON1
